Moon Garden Trailer Beautifully Blends Horror and Fantasy

I’ve often thought about how paper-thin the line between horror and fantasy is. Horror movies often revolve around some kind of supernatural entity or fantastical creature, and fantasy films usually feature terrifying villains that would be right at home in our nightmares. It’s almost like these genres are just two sides of the same coin, and after watching the trailer for the upcoming dark fantasy movie Moon Garden, I’m more convinced of that than ever. Here’s what the film is about:

When a little girl has a terrible accident and slips into a coma, she finds herself thrust into a darkly surreal industrial dreamworld. Haunted by a nightmarish spectre that feeds off her tears, she must follow her mother’s radio-static voice to find her way back to consciousness.

Admittedly, that brief plot synopsis may not sound particularly noteworthy on paper. A kid gets stuck in another world and has to find her way back home. Been there, done that. But that’s not the real draw of this movie. Rather, the true star of the show is the way this familiar story is told, and if the trailer is any indication, Moon Garden is going to be an absolute wonder to behold.

For starters, this is hands down the most beautifully atmospheric trailer I’ve seen in a while. Everything about it, from the score to the cinematography to the wildly imaginative visuals, is utterly captivating. In fact, there’s something almost hypnotic about it, so I’m confident that this film is going to be a real joy to watch.

On top of that, the trailer also features some really cool monsters, so like I said before, Moon Garden looks like a textbook example of the inseverable connection between horror and fantasy. Sure, this may not be a straight-up horror movie, but it sure seems like it’s going to have enough creepy elements to satisfy any horror fan.

When you put all that together, you get one hell of a trailer, so I absolutely can’t wait to see Moon Garden. This looks like it just might be the best dark fantasy film since The Green Knight, so if it lives up to its promise, we’re in for a real treat.

Moon Garden doesn’t have a concrete release date yet, but it’s set to hit arthouse theaters sometime this year.
